Social Circle Dental is committed to providing treatments that fit the budgets and lifestyles of patients in Social Circle, GA and beyond. We proudly serve patients who seek our holistic and biological approach to dental care. Our highly sought after dentist, Dr. Jones, has more than 42 years of experience transforming smiles. We know that decisions regarding smiles are important. Therefore, we do all we can to help patients understand their insurance coverage and provide estimates of what may be covered. When asked if dental insurance covers dental crowns, we respond, “It depends.” Individual needs will determine the cost as well as coverage of treatments such as crowns.
Since needs vary, we offer two methods of crown treatment. For the teeth that show when smiling, where aesthetics is a concern, Dr. Jones may recommend crowns fabricated at a high quality laboratory. After impressions are made, they are used to customize the crowns. Creating the ideal crowns involves artistic and technical skills and expertise. Dr. Jones and a crown ceramist make an excellent team in creating crowns that will blend naturally with smiles.
When a tooth requires prompt treatment, another method may be ideal. Dr. Jones and our team proudly offer innovative CEREC technology that allows us to provide a crown in a single appointment. Utilizing CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) technology, a digital impression is taken of the tooth. The image is displayed in 3-D on the computer screen, allowing the patient to be involved with the process. Then, a block of ceramic is placed in a milling machine in which the crown is fabricated. The crown is checked for precise fit and ideal shade before Dr. Jones permanently cements it to the tooth. The crown is polished, leaving the patient with a natural looking restoration.
Regardless of the method of crown treatment, patients can embrace long-lasting results. With excellent oral hygiene habits including brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, crowns can last up to a decade or more.
